Twelve Million Bees Posted on Thursday, 3 July, 2008 by Frank Key What a headline! Lorry carrying 12m bees overturns.
According to this news item, ‘You certainly don’t want to go walking through a field of disoriented, agitated and wet honey bees’. Wise words, indeed.
Frank, if you are recovered from your latest wheezing fit, you ought to propose yourself to the BBC as a sort of “Special Rapporteur” on bees and bee-related matters. I’d recommend you swat up on your apiary before presenting yourself in front of the director-general wearing the yeallow-and black sweater that marks you as an official bee-expert (like the fellow from the New Brunswick Beekeepers Association).
I refer you to “Voice of the Hive”, a collection of inspiring and edifying bee-related stories.
(not to be confused with the 80’s anglo-american pop-pap band – a plague of parasitic hive-mites upon them! )
